VIDEO | Alcohol Ink Storage & Organisation

Hello there, today I have a little video showing how I store and organise my alcohol inks. Over the last two years, I have fallen in love with these babies! Considering I am not usually one for getting inky, I have really enjoyed using these. As with me, I always need to find a storage solution for anything new I get. I was so happy that Ranger and Tim Holtz brought out their Alcohol ink Storage Tins recently. Up until now, I have had them in a plastic box, which served it's purpose but these are so much neater.

I love that I can put them in colour order in the tins and that they are just neat and tidy. As I show in the video, I added a little dot of colour to the top of the bottles. This is mainly so that I know which lid goes with which alcohol ink, as when playing, I don't always put them back on straight away and get them mixed up occasionally. I added a little of the ink colour to a piece of Yupo then used a standard UK hole punch to cut the circle piece. This was added on top of the bottle lid with Multi Medium Matte.
In the video, I also show my alcohol ink swatches. I find these really helpful when choosing what colours to use. I made these using a blank download from Jennifer McGuire but she has now made some specifically for the Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks which you download from this blog post here. Here is the video showing everything:

I also share in the video, how I am storing my tools. I have them in a little pencil box. I mentioned in the video, that I purchased the box from a local DIY store but I was mistaken, sorry. I purchased it from a local Supermarket (Tesco). I love that I can fit all the tools I use into one box.

I hope that this may have helped some of you decide if the tins are for you or not and how you may want to store your alcohol ink, if you have them. Thank you so much for visiting me today, I hope you have a great day!


  1. I enjoyed your video. I too have discovered I enjoy alcohol inks. I am building my collection and would find it really helpful if you would include more photos of your ink swatches so we could see each swatch. I tried watching the video but it was difficult to see some of them.

  2. I really like how you store and swatch your alcohol inks. Thanks for showing that you swatch the inks the way you like to use them.
